    USB 3.0 USB-C Male to USB-A Female Cable, 6-inch

    USB-C is here and it is a real game changer!

    • New reversible Type C connector plugs in the first time, every time!
    • Use a single cable for power, video, networking, and data
    • USB 3.1 SuperSpeed+ supports up to 10Gbps data rate
    • Charge and power devices with up to 100 watts of power

    Until this point we've had to deal with a number of different USB connector types with different shapes and sizes. One thing that is common among all the various USB Type A and Type B connectors is that they are all asymmetrical, which means that there is a top and a bottom, as anyone who has fumbled around trying to insert a USB cable by feel can attest. The old USB standards are also relatively slow and can carry very little charging power.

    The USB 3.1 standard introduces the new symmetrical/reversible Type C connector. The new connector is only slightly larger than the older mini and micro Type B connectors, which means that it can be used on mobile devices, replacing the existing use of mini or micro connectors. Also, unlike the earlier use of different connectors for the host (Type A) and peripheral (Type B) devices, the Type C connector is used at both ends. Best of all, the connector is symmetrical, which means no more fumbling around to figure out which side is supposed to be on top. Just grab either end and plug it in!

    In addition to the new connector, the USB 3.1 standard increases the data transfer rate to 10GBps, which is fast enough to carry full HD video and multichannel, uncompressed audio. The standard also increases the power handling capabilities to 100 watts, which means that USB C will replace existing power, video, networking, and data cables. Apple is taking this to the extreme, with the latest MacBook Air® featuring only a single USB C port for charging, video, and connecting peripheral devices.

    This 6-inch USB 3.0 cable features a male USB Type C connector on one end and a female USB 3.0 Type A connector on the other end.

    Solid USB Adapter

    The USB-C side of this engages solidly and the whole thing seems well made. Worked great to allow peripheral device usage on Nexus 5x.

    Works for OTG USB with the Nexus 6p Android device.
    Can mount flash drives/sd card adapters, although my device had trouble with some of my FAT32-formatted USB flash drives. Not sure whether this is due to the cable or Android or something else.
    Was able to connect and use a DualShock 3 controller and a webcam.

    Does its job perfectly.

    Pros: Works as you'd expect.

    Cons: Black color isn't necessarily a match for the MacBook or the Chromebook that it would be used with right now. (Not as important in the future.) The cable is a little stiff, so it does act as a big of strain relief on the connector.

    I would think that the adapter could be even shorter and not hinder anything. If it were slightly more flexible and available in different colors, even better. Right now, although it works perfectly, it does look like a sore thumb. At any rate, I find it useful.

    Pros: Great value for the price. This is a very nice alternative to the Apple branded one and less money.

    Cons: None.

    Must have addition for anyone with a 12" MacBook.

    Perfect for the new MacBook

    Pros: Works perfectly, High speed

    Cons: None

    Picked this up instead of the Apple adapter for my new MacBook, and am very happy I did - the speed difference with USB 3 versus the USB 2 on my old Mac is huge, and this adapter handles it wonderfully!
